Sanding Hull

First I opened up the entire run for where the Keel and Stem will be attached with my Wood Carving Tool which has a 90° Angle to it.

Now, I’m Sanding the entire Hull.

Now I’m Sanding Sanding Sanding with my MicroMark Sanding Block with 80 Grit Sandpaper.

Sanding takes awhile to do. I find it relaxing. The one thing that you have to be careful about is to not over sand. I’ve done that before on a previous model in my enthusiasm to get the lines perfect. Very disconcerting.

Sanding Block

I am back from the break that I took.

I looked all over for my Sanding Block that I got with an Xacto set from years ago. I’m talking maybe 30 years!!!

So, I couldn’t find it and have been obsessing about it until I decided to make another block. Not that I’ll have use for it any time soon.
